It is with the deepest sadness and lots and lots of anger that we need to tell you that Fairfax County has closed all Park Authority grass fields all weekend. As far as the tournament goes, this effects BARON CAMERON only ( NOT Hutchison as it is a school field and they do not have control over that). This is a ridiculous decision particularly in regards to Sunday, and I can tell you that I had staff out at Baron Cameron this afternoon and the little U8 fields would have been perfectly playable. I called our area Park Authority manager and he made a couple calls but the message back was basically to bad/so sad.
If we possibly could have we would have tried to move these games elsewhere, however obviously grass fields were not an option and I had to previously give back all of the turf space I was not using to the county ( a requirement) and they in turn had already given it to the BETHESDA tournament.
If you are angry……so are we. Feel absolutely free to express your feelings to the Park Authority.
Also, ask your county people why it is they are giving OUR TURF FIELDS in Fairfax County to a MARYLAND tournament. To the teams effected, we will be in touch soon with information as to partial refunds and credits for next year’s all-star tournament. It may take a couple weeks as I have 2 upcoming hospitalizations and our treasurer is out of town for 2 weeks for the holiday.
ALL OTHER FIELDS WILL BE OPEN ON TIME TOMORROW
In person Pre-Tournament check in will be Wednesday November 14th from 7:00-9:30pm at the Hiddenbrook Swim and Tennis Clubhouse located at 1508 A Sadlers Wells Drive Herndon VA 20170. You may check-in multiple teams and any club/team representative may handle the teams’ check in. If you check in on Wednesday night, you may proceed directly to your designated field on Saturday morning.
Herndon Youth Soccer will be hosting the 18th annual All-Star Cup on November 17-18, 2018.
Registration is now closed. A list of the participating teams will be posted by the end of the week under accepted teams and by the end of October we will email to each of the club contacts some information they can pass along to their teams. We are in the process of working on the schedules now and it is unlikely that we would or could add any additional teams but please contact Jody Rametta at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to check or be added to the wait list.
Schedules are posted
This year we are giving coaches 3 options for checking- in their teams.
These items are mandatory no matter what form of check-in you use.
1. US Youth Soccer player passes signed by your club representative. Player passes DO NOT need to be signed by the player. They do not need a picture. NOTE: many of the new version of VYSA issued rec passes do not have the line on the back for the club signature but this is still required by the State so just sign where there is space on the back as always, or on the front is okay too.
2. Medical release forms signed by a parent/guardian or by the player if the player is 18 years of age. (You may use your club medical forms or we have two varieties on the tournament web site)
3. Two copies of the team roster signed by your club representative and containing contact information (cell phone/home phone numbers) for coaches. (You may use your club roster but it must contain all of the information required on the tournament roster.) Please make sure the roster lists the player’s jersey number, these are required.
Please make sure you pick up your coach’s gift at check-in. If you are a U8 Coach, also make sure you pick up your players’ participation awards. Those who have checked in online can pick their items up at the site coordinators tent at their site on Saturday morning.
There is no on-field warm-up between games. Teams will take the field ready to play. The home team provides the ball. The home team is designated first on the schedule.
You will be issued a game card at team check-in ( or pick up at the site coordinators tent if you checked- in online) The game card must be returned by the winning team (both teams in case of a tie) to the site coordinator’s tent within 1 hour of game completion. As the game card must be signed by the referee, it is recommended that you assign a parent the task of completing the game card and getting it signed and returned to the site coordinator’s tent. Make sure the game card is completed properly and has your team name and your opponent’s name listed as they are listed on the tournament schedule.
